Capital Allowances

Did you know that you could claim tax relief on your commercial property purchase?

Capital Allowances are a valuable form of tax relief and are available where a person incurs capital expenditure, usually through refurbishing, building or more commonly known when buying commercial property.

This Government Legislation has been available for over 100 years!

It is the right of the commercial property owner to identify and claim upon any available Capital Allowances hidden within their commercial property, the owner loses that right when they sell. An average claim for Capital Allowances can equate to 25% of the property purchase price.

It is a Chartered Surveyor who can appropriately identify and individually value the qualifying fixtures and fittings hidden inside a commercial property, reasoning why most accountants rarely provide this service as an 'in house' operation.

Roger Hannah & Co can prepare the required Plant Site and Bare Site Survey Reports that identifies:

A - Bare Land Value

B - Reconstruction Cost without the inclusion of (C)

C - Itemised Valuation of qualifying Fixtures & Fittings

The values identified in these individual reports, are now qualified to be placed in the HMRC calculation matrix, resulting in a comprehensive and maximised Capital Allowances Valuation Report (CAVR).


Why should I choose Roger Hannah & Co?

  1. Specialist accountancy and surveying professions = maximum benefit.
  2. Confidence of an HMRC compliant claim.
  3. Free feasibility study.
  4. No upfront charges.
  5. If no claim is identified then no charge.


Capital Allowances can only be claimed once in the history of the building!
